vs. SpaceGodzilla (1994)
Falcon's Test Flight
||The Star Falcon, one of Moguera's
halves, is given a test flight high above the
Earth's atmosphere to check performance of the
craft in zero gravity.
A very brief scene that just shows the
Star Falcon flying in outer space, with Earth
in the distance. It's assumed that the scene
was going to be shown during the opening credit
sequence, perhaps before Moguera under goes
numerous maintenance checks. In its current
state, the scene is far too brief, given that
there is no context to place the scene in,
to understand exactly what's going on. If
the scene was going to be elaborated on or
not is unknown. It could also be mused that
perhaps the sequence was only intended to
be used in trailers if extra footage was needed.
Inspects the Crystal Prison
||After Little Godzilla is imprisoned
by SpaceGodzilla on Birth Island, the King of
the Monsters ventures over to witness the fate
of his offspring.
As seen in the film, Godzilla appears to
abruptly leave Birth Island in hot pursuit
of SpaceGodzilla after Little Godzilla is
sealed inside the crystals. Production stills,
however, show of a sequence of the nuclear
leviathan looking over what happend to the
||As Godzilla approaches the mainland
of Japan, seeking revenge against his space
birthed doppelganger, the JSDF initiates their
defensive strike. Lacing the bay with subs,
battleships, and several varieties of attack
helicopters, the nation sought to protect itself.
However, even this iron current was not enough
to prevent the saurian demon from touching Japan
soil. Nearly every man made creation was reduced
to ash and molten slag, drifting to the bottom
of the black seas.
Stock footage was used during the entire
sea battle that made it into the final cut;
however, there was an entire segment filmed
with new props and models for this conflict.
Unfortunately, filming didn't go as planned,
and several effects were noticeably off. Special
effects director Koichi
Kawakita wanted to re-shoot the scene,
but there wasn't enough time left in the production
cycle to permit such a luxury, so stock footage
had to be used as a quick substitute.
